Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2014
This is a very rich and basic casserole comfort food. My kids loved it and I would make it again. I did make some adjustments though. As a child of the 70's and daughter of a terrible cook, when I see canned cream soup as a recipe ingredient, I simply cannot go there. Instead I made the bechamel sauce from Chicken Pot Pie IX on this web site, reducing the butter by a few tablespoons since more butter comes in here for the topping. I also added frozen peas and chopped carrots to the chicken cooking step. Finally, the recipe calls for 6 oz of noodles, and rather than store 2 oz of noodles I recklessly used the whole 8 oz package, and there was plenty of sauce. If you go the canned soup route that may not be the case. The next time I make this I'll add a little thyme and oregano. Very tasty!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2014
The sauce was nice - nothing earth shattering, but easy and tasty. I made it in the crockpot based on another review here, great idea! I would make this again, but I would make the meatballs about half the size next time. The recipe says to make 12, but they are really big, and as some have noted here they have kind of a bready texture from all the breadcrumbs. I think if you didn't have to cut into them but could just pop them in your mouth they would be more appealing. I would also add a little minced onion or something to them next time. But overall, nice recipe.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2014
My family loves this and it's now in my regular rotation. One of my kids is the pickiest eater ever and even he likes it. It's fairly easy and so homey and comforting in cold weather. I make it exactly as described minus celery seed.
